South Korean Military Drill Ends Without Confrontation

It was nice to see so many talented National Security experts and top notch reporters in South Korea on Twitter last night during the South Korean military drill on Yeonpyeong island. One of the first questions that popped up after the drill concluded was "Did Seoul just win a terrifying game of chicken?"

No. Throughout the military exercise there were reports of an enormous show of military force in the air and at sea around the islands. North Korea is not stupid, they will not fight South Korea on the terms of South Korea, they will wait and strike when the time is right for them.

The real question we should be asking on December 20, 2010, is whether North Korea will respond before the new year, or after? A response from North Korea is coming, of that have no doubt. It will be on their time and in the place of their choosing.
